The imaginative three-part puppet-animation film CHOO-CHOO demonstrates without words the importance of having friends. Plot, music and dance combine to form a minor artistic masterpiece in the course of this story about the friendship between a small boy and the fantasy figure Choo-Choo. The adventures they experience together on a pirate island are truly astounding. Although the boy is smitten by jealousy when a small dog joins them, by the end the threesome is inseparable. “The film is striking not least for a subtle humour producing chuckles in younger and older viewers alike” – so ran the verdict of the international jury which awarded a distinction to CHOO-CHOO 3 at the 2005 Children’s Film Festival LUCAS.
